Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brad Rock Solid!
I'm giving 4 stars due to the pricing of this stand. It is $100 more than other miter saw stands out there; however, I have a Bosch GCM12SD and it weighs 86 pounds. I originally purchased a Delta stand and the saw was too heavy for it when in "storage mode". It kept sliding and wouldn't stay in place. I took the Delta back and tried Ridgid... no luck there either. It seems the only stand that can hold the Bosch GCM12SD is this stand. I would have tried Dewalt but after two tries and failing each time, I decided to bite the bullet and spend the extra $100. This stand is rock solid! It's extremely easy to set up and take down and my saw doesn't slide at all. This is a very well built stand. If you have a Bosch GCM12SD or a saw that weighs around 80 pounds then look no further. If you want your saw to stay attached to a stand that can fold up and store away in a closet then this stand is the one you'll need. Keep in mind that if you do store it in a closet then you'll need a pretty big closet... the footprint on this is big. But, it is well worth spending the extra $100 and saving time on trying other stands for your heavy miter saw. Plus you'll have piece of mind knowing that your saw will not come flying off the stand when in "storage mode". I highly recommend this stand for heavier saws (which would most likely be most sliding miter saws). If you don't have a sliding miter saw then or it weighs well below 80 pounds... get the DEWALT Rolling Miter Saw Stand and save yourself $100!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RDLouks Very Well Built
This unit is very well built, but is a bit expensive as compared to other brands. I would give it 5 stars but the fasteners included are very cheap and poor quality. Out of the 8 bolts used to fasten the tool bed to the frame I broke the heads off 3 of them with very little effort. I ended up replacing all eight as they must carry the weight of whatever tool is mounted on it.

Overall I'm happy with my purchase. The only complaint I have about this stand is the wheels. They make noise as I move it. I would say a better value would be the delta miter saw stand from lowes but they didn't have the extension on the stand like the Bosch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eggsie Help guard against road rash on the bottom base touching the ground while in folded mode
As Fatman suggests, get a piece of 1 1/2" inside dia tubing, and cut a 3/4" groove in it lengthwise. But before I squeezed in on the tube, I wrapped the tube area all the way to the rounded shoulders, with 20MILPVC (by UPC) black sticky tape. I did this for 2 reasons:
1. to provide a waterproof coating should the plastic tubing crack or rotate to a position where the groove in the tubing allowed the base to scratch along the bottom and therefore prone to rust.
2. to thicken the base so that when the tubing is popped on, it's tight and won't rotate at all.
I had to cut the groove such, that it was a bit tough to squeeze open before popping on, but then mounted nice and tight on the base of the stand. Came out great.
My only concern at this point: After reading many reviews, I'm hopeful that if there is a parts problem, that I won't experience the lack of support and/or unavailability of certain parts that a number of reviewers referred to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPomy Best stand I could find for my Bosch GSM12SD Miter Saw
This stand is the best you will find out there, whether for your Bosch specific saw, or other brands that will fit it. (Not sure why people gave bad reviews when their saw did not fit) However, because it's the best, you will pay for it. I was fortunate enough to get this on sale and love the quality/construction. As a person who is meticulous when researching different products and testing them out, this is by far the best option I could find. I tried multiple other brands and was less than impressed with the stability. I also tried Bosch's less portable version which is a straight beam which is longer and has small wheels on the end. That is fine if you aren't moving it around that much and is just as stable as this gravity stand. Personally, I move it around a lot and also up and down stairs. The large wheels and ease of mobility are unmatched in this design. The brackets to attach the saw are much bulkier than the other brands, but that's because these are all metal and not cheap plastic. These will never break. However, if weight is something that matters, please know that these brackets make the saw heavier than others when trying to remove and install onto the beam. Didn't matter to me because you can store it while attached and not have to worry about it coming off. I will be adding skid protection to the base where it touches the ground when stowed and also to the back slats for moving up and down stairs. This is not a necessity, but fro someone like me, I want it to look new for my lifetime. In closing, please try this and I do not think you will be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mitch worth the extra money
I debated long and hard about getting the Bosch stand instead of other stands that were available. Especially trying to justify the extra $100 for the Bosch stand. Then I used my Bosch portable circular saw with the same stand and asked myself why am I hesitating? The stand works great and is easy to move and store. The features are great and the stand is well made. Worth the extra money to me.

Simple to assembly the stand and mount to saw. Well made and sturdy frame. Easy to move around and fold up when not in use.
